What is

When potentially risky search page called appears in your browsers, you may not even realize it due to the resemblance to the most popular Google search engine. This resemblance cannot be the work of coincidence but more likely a purposeful deception. This is not the first time our malware experts at see a browser hijacker like this. In fact, this malware infection belongs to a large and growing family of hijackers that includes identical clones ( as well as very similar search engines ( and Finding this hijacker in your browsers could mean that there are other malware threats on board, too. This browser hijacker may gather information about your online activities and use this to display customized content for you via manipulated search results.

Of course, this may not clean your PC completely, so you will need to be persistent and go on with the hunt until no questionable program remains hiding on your computer.test

Where does come from?

Just like its latest identical clone,, it is possible that this browser hijacker is also spread by a questionable browser extension, TubeTab. As a matter of fact, you can see "TubeTab" written at the bottom of the page, which clearly shows the relation with this extension. This is why you always need to make sure that you read carefully the pop-up window that comes up every time when you are installing a browser hijacker, because most of the time it discloses the browser setting changes involving the installation of such a search engine. Nevertheless, no matter whether you installed this questionable search page knowingly or by mistake, we recommend that you delete right now.

The worse situation is when you install this threat from a free software bundle. Such malicious software packages are usually promoted by shady file-sharing sites like,, and A lot of unsuspecting users make the mistake of search the web for free software to download but they do not research their targeted tool or the website where they choose to download it from. This is why most of them may end up on unfamiliar and malicious torrent and freeware pages. However, even if you never try to download free software from such sources, you may land on suspicious websites from time to time while surfing the web. Such pages generally involve online gaming, gambling, dating, and porn pages. If you have visited such pages recently that promote unsafe third-party ads, chances are you clicked on one by accident and ended up with a malicious bundle on your system.

You should generally stay away from all the unknown and questionable search engines and stick with the reputable ones, such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing, unless you want to be exposed to potentially unsafe third-party ads and sponsored links that may lead to malicious pages or direct malware infections. Of course, to be quite frank, even using the most popular search engines has its risks since certain pages just cannot be filtered out as malicious. Cyber crooks know exactly how to stay on top of the search results lists. So it is mainly up to you to be able to decide whether you click on a legitimate link or one that may take you to a fake or malicious page.
